What you get with a Custom Site
This package is designed to get you up and running with a working site, complete with content.
- I install WordPress onto your hosting account’s server. This includes features designed to optimise the security of your site: databases whose names do not start with ‘wp’, a log-in with a secure name (as opposed to ‘Admin’), and a limit for log-in attempts.
- I set your permalinks to ‘post name’ so that your page and blog addresses are more friendly to visitors and search engines.
- I install the Divi theme from Elegant Themes, create a ‘Child Theme’, and activate it (recommended in case of any custom changes to your theme).
- I create up to five pages including the front page of your site — I do the layout for you and add your content: images/text.
- I create and install a custom header image or slideshow with up to 5 of your images for the front page of your site.
- I put Social Media connections on the front page.
- I’ll even install some useful plug-ins to help you get the most out of your site.
I can, of course, help you with additional items at my regular hourly rate.

- Log-in information for your hosting account (you can change your password once we are finished)
- What pages you’d like me to create
- Colour preferences for menu links, etc.

What’s not included
- One-on-one support for how to use WordPress or the Divi theme. I assume that you’re willing to take responsibility on how to do this. I do offer a page on my site with helpful tips and links to pertinent information.
- Search Engine Optimization — I do not guarantee any ranking when people search for sites like yours. This is something companies charge a lot of money for. Check my help page for tips and links.
- Technical support of any kind pertaining to your hosting account, emails associated with it, problems with your website due to incompatibility of plug-ins you may decide to add, lost data, or other things beyond my control.
I can, of course, help you with most of these items at my regular hourly rate.
